What is E.O.B.B.D.?
While there are many rating systems for assuring essential oil quality, the highest quality standard for therapeutic grade essential oils is E.O.B.B.D. (Essential Oil Botanically and Biochemically Defined).
E.O.B.B.D. stands for Essential Oil Botanically and Biochemically Defined. This rigorous quality standard includes the tracing of each oil lot, botanical description, organoleptic characteristics, extraction mode and full physical and chemical analyses. E.O.B.B.D. testing has several components that ensure quality and potency for every step of the process, from plant to bottle.
